Florianopolis magical island, just an hour flight away from Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo City, is the host location for the Ironman Brazil triathlon. Ironman triathlon is a sport of long distance comprising approximately 3.8 km of swimming , 180km cycling and 42km running. The triathlon is a sport that emerged in 1974 in San Diego, United States, where athletes perform three different modes, in a fixed sequence: swimming, cycling and running.

Florianópolis is the capital city of Santa Catarina State in southern Brazil. It is composed of one main island, the Island of Santa Catarina (Ilha de Santa Catarina), a continental part and the surrounding small islands. It has a population of 408,161, according to a 2009 Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics estimate. The metropolitan area has an estimated population of 980,396. The city is known for having a high life quality, being the Brazilian capital city with the highest HDI (0.875) according to the UN.

The economy of Florianópolis is heavily based on information technology, tourism and services. The city has 42 beaches and is a center of surfing activity. The New York Times reported that "Florianopolis is the Party Destination of the Year in 2009." on January 11, 2009. Newsweek placed Florianópolis in the "Ten most dynamic cities of the world" list in 2006. Veja magazine, a Brazilian publication, named the city as "the best place to live in Brazil." As a result of this publicity, Florianópolis is growing as a second home destination for many Paulistas, Argentines, U.S. citizens and Europeans.

The island is generally considered to be blessed with the best and most consistent Surfing waves in Brazil, and in early November of each year hosts what is currently South America's only Association of Surfing Professionals World Championship Tour professional surfing competition.
